Bomber bought @ beermerchants.com. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with dark bread, liquorice root, charred wood, soil, burnt cereal, caraway, roasted hazelnuts, caramel and hay. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, moist soil, dark bread, charred wood, burnt cereal, bitter chocolate, lemon zest, hay and hints of wet stone. Mouthfeel is round, dry, smooth, tiny watery and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark bread, moist soil, hay, burnt cereal, charred wood and dark roast coffee. Great schwarzbier!

Bitter, cocoa taste, smells like muddy espresso. Dirty. Not my favorite. But gets smoother

1 pint bottle, dark pour, light coffee espresso bean flavor. Smells about the same, almost like a light dark. Smooth, good.

Ahh... Lager. There is just something so relaxing about lager, isn’t there?
Pours a very thin looking black and forms a light brown head which doesn’t last all that long. Aromas of roast and some cocoa. Taste is just pure relaxation... Subtle, supple, succulent. Light roast. So good. So very, very good.

Black with a rocky beige head. Dry nutty and biscuity malty nose with notes of chocolaty roast and dry cracker. Flavor is light and dry with roasty notes of dry unsweet cocoa, cracker yeast notes, and a dry slightly metallic earthy hoppiness. Un exciting.

Pours an opaque black. No head at all. Mouthfeel is wet with slight carbonation. It could’ve been a bit creamier. Aroma is pretty disappointing. Smoky like a burnt piece of toast. Pretty weak flavor of dark roast malt. Some underlying notes of plasticky cream. I’ll never make this mistake again.
